Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia is an internationally prominent scientific reference compilation, first published in German in the late 1960s, under the editorship of zoologist Bernhard Grzimek (1909-1987). In a cooperative effort between Gale and the American Zoo and Aquarium Association, the series has been completely revised and updated for the first time in over 30 years. Gale expanded the series from 13 to 17 volumes, commissioned new color paintings, and updated the information so as to make the set easier to use. The order of revisions is:
Volumes 8-11: Birds I-IV Volume 6: Amphibians Volume 7: Reptiles Volumes 4-5: Fishes I-II Volumes 12-16: Mammals I-V Volume 3: Insects Volume 2: Protostomes
Volume 1: Lower Metazoans and Lesser Deuterostomes Volume 17: Cumulative Index
